Pat, >Just for the record.. 8mb remained the base memory for almost all >machines >up till the first RISC box 9402-400.... Larger boxes came with more but >8mb was the standard for thousands of machines..... Just for the record, the following CISC machines had a base above 8MB: B50 and up D45 and up E45 and up F35 and up 200-2032 And of source, IBM's RPR and CPW ratings are always noted in the fine print as tested with maximum memory, not minimum. And we all know what difference memory makes in performance. I always wanted to see charts comparing one generation's machine with maximum memory to another's machine with a typical installation amount. So many people think they need a new box, when maybe all they need is memory and tuning...
